Photo Coverage: WONDERLAND's 'White Rabbit' Goes Down the Rabbit Hole
Yesterday, April 13, The White Rabbit (played by Edward Staudenmayer) ventured into Times Square to pose on the painting of the "rabbit hole" into Wonderland, created by 3DJoe&Max. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the photo op and brings you coverage below.
School friends, Joe Hill and Max Lowry teamed up seven years ago. Both fine artists in their own right, they took their artwork out onto the streets of London to make it more accessible. Since then, 3DJoe&Max and their team of artists have travelled the world, from New York to Shanghai. They design their paintings to encourage audience interaction and participation. Thanks to the internet and digital cameras, their pictures have been viewed the world over. Their creations have been used for all sorts of live events, marketing campaigns, pop videos and TV commercials. Their clients range from Google, Warner Bros and M&C Saatchi to Save the Children and Shelter Box. In 2010, Joe and Max were selected to represent UK creativity at the UK pavilion at the Shanghai World EXPO.
